    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Friday 29 Mar 2019 to Sunday 7 Apr 2019:

    On Friday and Saturday settled weather continues to prevail across central and southern parts, bringing dry but often cloudy weather. Any rain is likely to be confined to the north and northwest where it may be windy with a risk of gales. Going through the following week, many areas are likely to turn more generally unsettled. Cloudier, wetter and breezier conditions across the northwest are likely to move southeastwards at times, but tend to fragment as they do so, meaning relatively little rain for parts of the southeast. Brighter, showery interludes will also affect the north, with the showers bringing some hill snow here. Some warm spells in the south at first, otherwise temperatures are likely be around normal, with some colder interludes possible, particularly in the north.

    UK Outlook for Monday 8 Apr 2019 to Monday 22 Apr 2019:

    At the start of this period it looks most likely that we will see changeable conditions as spells of wet and windy weather moving southeastwards across the UK. The most unsettled conditions are likely to be in the northwest, with more settled weather across southeastern areas. Temperatures should be near average for most. Towards the middle of the month confidence is low; however there is a possibility that we may see a return of more widely settled and drier weather. Some wetter interludes are still possible, particularly in the northwest. It could well turn warm at times, particularly in the south.
